Ok, ok, now I KNOW we've often kidded around about a myriad of fun and zany ways we could all get together. Remember afgrey and I came up with the plan of riding her tractor, adding a big trailer and ALL of us heading to G-mom's to sit in her gazebo? We thought about doggie roasts and earning money mowing along the way, if I recall.

There've been some other good plans, too, I think.

But now really, everyone...I don't think a reunion would ever really work for us.

Just picture this:

We'd all be sitting around the table either talking a mile a minute and absentmindedly reaching for a mouse to click "Add Reply"

OR

We'd all be sitting there in abject silence 'coz there was nary a keyboard to be had!

laugh laugh laugh laugh

Well, I know I'd be trying to discretely look at Afgrey and Weezie's hands to get a glimpse of the kind of knuckle triceps it takes to type over 10,000 posts! "And what kind of mighty pinky is that to have hit 'enter' so many times?" is what I'd be thinking.

What about the rest of you? Any thoughts on how peculiar a real face-to-face party might be?

One thought

If we all sat on the same picnic table, it would collapse and dump us all on the ground. Just picture that now!

Well, there is NO WAY frown I could ever do this, unless I could get graemlins to pop out of the top of my head as I was talking. laugh Then, I'd lose track of the maximum 8 count :p because I wouldn't have that "Preview Post" button to fall back on. :rolleyes:

Ohmygosh you guys had me cracking UP with this!

I didn't even remember about graemlins and you've already thought about graemlin posters and flash cards!

I'd be really lost without my spell check as I wouldn't wanna say something if I was spelling it wrong in my head.

But I'd truly like to see G-mom and that whip...

And of course Nana would be there with about a million kidlets crawling all over her... sorta like the graemlins that were running up Weezie's arms during the Olympics....

and duckie with her very dry sense of humor slaying all and sundry... (how can such a wet woman duckie have such a dry humor? is what I'd like to know)

ONLY 3 FT THICK?! What do you take me for? It'd be at least 6ft thick, or perhaps, a mile long? laugh laugh laugh

Oh I'm easy enough to please. What is there to ever complain about good food well prepared? Even if it is "different" or something untried before?

AND, I eat anything at any time of day, so I'm not fussy.

People complain about eating with me, though, coz I eat very small amounts and I eat very slowly coz I'm too interested in socializing...

But I guarantee if you put on a feast, I would try to have at least one bite of everything you made.

Just load them tables up!
